    Series 4000 f/6.3 Focal Reducer/Field Flattener: An important
advancement in high-resolution focal reduction systems, the Meade
4-element, multi-coated f/6.3 Focal Reducer threads on to the rear cell
of any Meade LX-          Series mirror Focal lens telescope or to other
Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope brands (followed by the Off-Axis Guider,
shown, or T-Adapter) and reduces the telescope's focal ratio by a factor
of 0.63: e.g., f/10 telescopes are converted to f/6.3.

  
Simultaneously, the 41mm-diameter lens system helps to flatten the
field, significantly improving edge-of-field corrections. The f/6.3
Focal Reducer enables a reduction of photographic exposure times by
about 50%, while producing an actual field diameter of 1.5" at the film
plane.

9. Custom 18 inch ADM Dove Tail Bar w/mounts. When installed this will allow increased clearance for the camera allowing the scope to be aligned straight up.
10. "Turn Left At Orion" book! A great companion book to help locate planets and stars.

Celestron NexStar 8SE SCT GoTo Telescope

Celestron’s signature orange-tube telescope combines advanced
features and excellent optics in one easy-to-use system, the NexStar
8SE. It’s the perfect choice for your first serious telescope, offering
striking views at an economical price.

Reimagined

In the 1970s, Celestron’s Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes brought the
hobby of astronomy to the masses and established Celestron as the
world’s premier telescope maker. The founder, Tom Johnson, invented
Celestron’s proprietary method of producing Schmidt corrector plates for
superior views and maximum portability. Johnson believed in creating
high-quality optical instruments at an affordable price, and inspired a
generation of amateur astronomers.

Four decades later, Celestrons improved upon this design by adding
cutting-edge features, while staying true to their founder’s intent.

Revolutionary Design

The best telescope is the one you will use most often. That’s why
Celestron’s engineers created NexStar SE’s unique, patented single fork
arm mount. It’s perfectly portable and makes setup quick and easy.
What’s more, the NexStar SE breaks down into several lightweight and
compact pieces, making it easy to transport, even in small vehicles.
You’ll have no problem getting the NexStar SE to your favorite observing
site, or setting it up quickly in your backyard.

Of course, it’s what’s inside the mount that really counts. Sturdy
construction from high-quality components give NexStar SE the pointing
and tracking accuracy needed to observe and follow your favorite targets
with push-button ease. Use the included NexStar+ hand control to locate
over 40,000 celestial objects, or take a Sky Tour and let your
telescope show you the best objects currently visible.

Aligning your telescope is simple and painless, too, thanks to
SkyAlign. This process makes alignment as easy as 1-2-3: just center
three bright objects in your eyepiece and press ALIGN. For even easier
alignment, attach Celestrons StarSense AutoAlign and your NexStar SE
aligns itself! Celestron added their proprietary StarBright XLT optical
coating to enhance light transmission making your images brighter and
more detailed.

Advanced Features

The NexStar SE is compatible with all the high-tech accessories
advanced users love. Provide GPS coordinates to your telescope with
SkySync, or add automatic alignment functionality with StarSense
AutoAlign. Its built-in wedge allows you to track long exposures. You
can even remove the telescope’s secondary mirror and replace it with a
DSLR or astronomical CCD camera for wide field images captured at f/2
using a Fastar/HyperStar lens assembly. Or, if you’re interested in
imaging the Moon and planets, pair your NexStar 8SE with one of
Celestron's Skyris cameras. From your first observing session and for
years to come, the NexStar SE is your trusted companion.

View the Universe

With a full 8 inches of aperture, the 8SE reveals details in even the
faintest celestial objects. With this much light-gathering ability,
you’ll clearly observe Cassini’s Division in Saturn’s rings, the cloud
bands on Jupiter, and the Great Red Spot. Beyond the solar system, your
8SE will show you hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular
Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and more. And don’t
forget the Moon—you’ll see craters and geographic features like never
before.

Celestron 1.25" Eyepiece and Filter Kit with Aluminum Case

The most popular planetary filters are included in this kit.
Have fun seeing what a blue filter will reveal about Jupiter, or unveil
the polar ice caps on Mars with a red or orange filter. The Celestron
1.25” Eyepiece and Filter Kit is a great way to expand the functionality
and enjoyment of your telescope. Inside the metal, foam-lined carry
case you’ll find these accessories:

  • 32 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”
  • 17 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”
  • 13 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”
  • 8 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”
  • 6 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”
  • 2X Barlow Lens - 1.25”
  • #80A Blue Filter - 1.25”
  • #58 Green Filter - 1.25”
  • #56 Light Green Filter - 1.25”
  • #25 Red Filter - 1.25”
  • #21 Orange Filter - 1.25”
  • #12 Yellow Filter - 1.25”
  • Moon Filter - 1.25”

Eyepieces

All
five Plossl eyepieces can be used in any telescope with a 1.25”
focuser. Each eyepiece features a four-element design with a 52º
apparent field of view. The optics are fully multi-coated to improve
light transmission and protect the optics. The 32 mm Plossl eyepiece
offers a low power, wide field view in most telescopes, the 13 mm &
17 mm focal lengths are good medium-power oculars, and the 8 mm & 6
mm eyepieces provide high magnifications, great for the Moon and
planets, especially when seeing conditions are good.

2X Barlow Lens

The
included, and very versatile 2X Barlow doubles the magnification of any
1.25” eyepiece. Since this kit includes five (5) eyepieces, you will be
able to use them with and without the Barlow, giving you a total of ten
magnification options in all. Any other 1.25” eyepieces you already
have will also work in this desirable accessory, giving you even more
magnification choices. Remember, high magnifications do not always
produce clear, sharp results, especially on evenings of poor or moderate
seeing conditions. Experiment to find the magnifications that are best
for your telescope on a particular night.

Filters

Colored
filters can be used to bring out certain details on a planet’s surface
or its cloud structure. All of the planetary filters included in the
1.25” Eyepiece & Accessory Kit, as well as the Moon filter, can be
used on any 1.25” eyepiece with the proper filter threads, so they are
very versatile. Just screw one onto your eyepiece of choice and slide it
into the focuser.

Moon Filter

The Moon
filter is one of the first accessories most new amateur astronomers buy,
and for good reason! It helps block out a portion of the light the Moon
sends into your eyepiece so that you can see details better. You can
also try this filter on Venus; it blocks enough glare so you can observe
the planet’s phases more easily.

Metal Case

The
sturdy metal carry case has die-cut foam inside to protect and cushion
your accessories. Store each one in its appointed place when not in use
and you’ll keep them looking and performing like new. The case is even
large enough to carry a few extra accessories. Just pull out enough of
the foam cubes to make a nest for your eyepiece, camera adapter, etc. A
tight fit is better, so remove the least amount of foam possible before
testing the fit. You can always remove more if you need to.
